Bradz, The Meridian sounds like a very safe bet - also, I heard that one dealer mentioned it sounds better than the new Meridian 588 player. Another few you may want to consider is BAT (Balanced Audio Technology) VKd5 - should be able to get one used for around the $2k level. Another one is the YBA CD1. I just got a steal on a YBA CD1 Alpha - it's an amazing piece (I got it for $1,600 but was very lucky to get that price). Finally, if you can swing it, you may want to try the Naim CDX - supposed to be very special, if a litte over your budget. Good luck. John.
